DAX Leap Year In Power BI

Identifying the Leap is very simple logic, this post explains that how you can identify a year which is a leap year or non-leap year in Power BI.

Consider I have a year column on my table. If not then use the Year function on the data column and get the year column.

You need to find the below values,

  1. Year Start Date
  2. Year End Date
  3. Days between Year Start Date and Year End Date.
  4. Check the number of days

That’s it, very simple.

Use the below DAX expressions to identify the above values.

YearStartDate = DATE(‘Year'[Year],01,01)

YearEndDate = DATE(‘Year'[Year],12,31)

TotalDays = (‘Year'[YearEndDate]-‘Year'[YearStartDate])*1+1

IsLeapyear = IF(‘Year'[TotalDays]=366,”Yes”,”No”)

Happy Learning.
